Like most creatives I've been dreaming and drawing as far back as I can remember and to my great fortune I was graced with the opportunity to make that love for creating into a career. Growing up in Northwest Ohio, I made friends, caused chaos, fell in love, and was introduced to some truly great instructors and professionals who helped guide me on the start of my journey. After high school I pulled up stakes and moved to Dover, New Jersey for formal training in illustration/design/narrative art at the Joe Kubert School. While there I took instruction from amazing illustration professionals like Tex Blaisdell, Jose Delbo, John Troy, Joel Naprstek, Irwin Hasen, and the comic book legend Joe Kubert.
I graduated from Kubert in 1996 and returned to Ohio. I married my beautiful wife and immersed myself into the children's publishing field. Over the next twenty years I had the pleasure of illustrating for a variety of publishers including McGraw-Hill Children's Publishing, Tribune Publishing, School Specialty Publishing, Landoll's Children's Publishing and Carson-Dellosa Publishing.
While children's publishing has been my main focus I continue to employ my illustration skills in all forms of media including the Internet, movies, comic books, and concept production art.
I currently reside in Ohio with my wife, Angie, our three children, and our bulldogge Pudge. And I thank God every day to be alive I an age when you can see a 70 year old woman argue with an 8 year old kid whether the Hulk could beat up Superman. Ah yes, life is good.

I hired Josh to do a cover for my comic book, Undead State. Not only did he deliver it well in advance of the deadline, but it was absolutely amazing!!

I am always amazed at the level of imagination, skill, and pepsi drinking that Josh has always put into his illustrations. It’s a lot of pepsi, trust me. Literally every piece he illustrates is an amazingly inspirational piece of art.
He now owes me 100 bucks.
